Project 'Magical City: Banja Luka'' No. 1
My job as a photographer gave me a lot of new opportunities, and I took that as an advantage to make some of my projects. One of them is named ‘Magical City ’ and through it, I tried to show my love towards the city where I live. I photographed the entire city and all the places that characterize it. I was the first man that did this kind of photos of Banja Luka City.
It took a year to finish the project, most of the photos were taken at night because I wanted to display the soul of the city, but not when there are people in the streets because that just represents the spirit of citizens. I focused on city only, wanted for people to see old buildings, famous monuments that stand for years in the same location and by which most of us pass every day, without paying attention. In Balkan were I live, there are all kinds of nations, and I wanted to emphasize the beauty in which we live today, to show others that war is over, that we surpassed our differences and that we live together in peace, respecting each other. Banjaluka is the cultural city, where people enthusiastically welcome everyone regardless where they come from and who they are.
